I have a product with 5 color options setup as simple products. If one of the colors is out of stock, it does not show the color option. I need it to show everything, even out of stock items, so that customers can sign up to be notified when they are back in stock.
I have tested on a fresh install and it seems to be doing the same thing. Is this a bug ?
Yes, Display Out Of Stock Products is set to yes.
I do not understand your answer. You say to set that to yes (which it is) but then you say that out of stock products do not display in configurable products on the next line.
I don't understand. I need all out of stock products to display. Why would it have that setting, if it is not possible as part of Magento core ?
For Core Magento code, This is not working. If you want to show out of stock product at the product page you need to customize it. Default magento, if any product is out of stock then they will not display in product page only in stock child item are display in product page.
So what is the purpose of the setting in configuration "Display Out Of Stock Products" ?
This does not make sense to me. Why would Magento force this not to display ?
Please can someone give me some insight into this.
All products, except configurable products are showing when out of stock, as they should. However, if a simple product that is part of a configurable collection is out of stock, it's not showing. This appears to be a bug but does anyone know
